Does anyone know of a company that can make band shirts that are distressed or something? Not your typical dollar store t-shirt with the band name screened on it. Although that is what all of my old bands have used :-P
#10
if you're an aussie, then ftm t-shirts seem to do pretty much everything around here...+ they can probably find you just about any form of clothing you want.

i'm starting a clothing company (check my profile for a link) but it looks like it's gonna be pretty mcuh dead, cos the talented one quit


anyway, great idea for a thread

this thread is a great idea. i havnt started thinking about merch for my band, but i got a friend who makes t shirts. i'd just like to ask a few questions. when should a band start making t shirts? how many should you make to start off with? and for the heck of it, my band's name is emerson and we are a hard rock/blues/punk band, if anyone wants to try making a design for me. preferably something simplistic.

Heres a design I made for a friend of mines band.



Its one of my first creations.

Hey, im in a hardcore/scremo band called Indigo Skies and i was wondering if one of you guys could give me a pretty cool shirt design. Preferably for free if u dont mind. I was sort of looking for something like our myspace background ( www.myspace.com/indigoskies1 ). Thanks a lot guys.
#29
Kaptink that is awesome. thats just what i was talking about. thank you so much.
#31
wow, this is an amazing idea!

Well, I do all my own artwork and designs, so I'm not going to ask for anything, but I will do art for other people, for free of course.

Here's some examples of my work.

Sure, website designs are another thing that helps advertise your band.



So is anyone interested?

Im not looking for something amazing just a simple one.

The band name is The Foundation Of

Something along these lines:
http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=6968504

same format.

Preferred colours would be white and black.
If not Yellow and Black.
or Green and Yellow

anything is fine though.

Badges For Bands are a company I found. I havent used them yet, but they do t-shirts, badges, flyers and packs of all 3.

they seem resaonably priced, and they are UK based, I think

My band is called Next In Line.

i was wondering if someone could make a shirt design, preferably one color on white or black, we're a punk band and if you use our profile picture from myspace as our design, it could make it better.

Link : www.myspace.com/nextinlinepa

Profile Picture : http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y228/sslostprophet/invertedlogo.jpg

Thanks,

www.vistaprint.com is a good place if you want just a few t shirts instead of getting like 100

I got 3 full color front and back t shirts for 45 bux with shipping
